Vivian Gagliano

Group Facilitator 

Vivian Gagliano started her career in health care, working in health education and also on the front-lines of mental health in hospitals, nursing homes, and group homes. She later found herself experiencing the early signs of burn-out and found new purpose supporting health from behind the scenes in a career in marketing and communications. 

She is currently Head of Content and Community for a Canadian purpose-led virtual ADHD clinic, Frida. She is passionate about growth, healing, and mental health, and believes deeply in finding understanding between neurodivergent and neurotypical brains towards better empathy, compassion, and relationships. She draws from both her personal experiences with a partner and loved ones with ADHD, as well as her professional experiences working to improve the support for those with ADHD through Frida.

Kaylie Schmidt

Neurodivergent Parent Support Coach (R.N, BSN, PHN)

Kaylie is a mama to 3 neurospicy little humans who are the light of her life. After years of working as a NICU and triage nurse, Kaylie realized that her greatest calling is at home. Through the journey of understanding her children’s neurotypes, Kaylie came to understand her own Neurodivergence. Kaylie has a great love for learning, which became the catalyst for years of research on all things neurospicy. Her greatest passion lies in helping children feel comfortable in their own skin and understanding what makes them tick. Her methodology will always be that kids always WANT to do well when they are able to.

Kaylie loves coming alongside parents to empower them to understand their children on a deeper level. Her philosophy is that we can guide our Autistic children to a more peaceful and comfortable experience by listening to the lived experience of Autistic adults. Her goal is for no family to feel alone in the journey of understanding what goes on in our beautiful, complex, and fascinating little humans’ brains.
